Episode 201: The Fifth Circuit: It’s Complicated

It’s a new year but little is new with qualified immunity in the Fifth Circuit. Or is it? Easha Anand of the MacArthur Justice Center joins us to discuss a recent denial of qualified immunity in a police brutality case. IJ’s Anya Bidwell joins in and reports on a couple other developments that demonstrate perhaps there’s some “split second” thinking going on among those judges.

Further, we ask our listeners to send in your nominations for the “most beautiful” U.S. Court of Appeals courtrooms. Got a favorite? Let us know! Either send us an email or find us on Twitter.

Also, apply to be an IJ summer fellow! The deadline is January 14, 2022.
